Traumatic brain injuries

If you or someone you know has experienced a brain injury, you likely have questions about the recovery process. At Regions Hospital, we care for people with mild, moderate and severe brain injuries. Each person’s path to recovery is unique. We’re here to support you and help you get back to your everyday life.

Services while hospitalized

For those with injuries that require hospitalization, rehabilitation services begin early to maximize your recovery. We’ll incorporate the latest techniques, technology and equipment into your therapies to help you regain your independence. Your program may include at least three hours of therapy a day, daily visits by your care team and hands-on learning and education for you and your family on the recovery process.

Services after you go home

To continue healing, you may need rehabilitation services after you leave the hospital. We know that you would like to regain as much independence as possible. Ongoing therapy services at our hospital or clinics can help you reach your goals. Outpatient services may include physical therapy, pool therapy, occupational therapy, psychotherapy and speech therapy. We also offer a variety of support groups to help you and your family during your recovery.

Concussion/Mild Brain Injury Clinic

If you’ve sustained a concussion or mild brain injury that doesn’t require hospitalization, visiting this clinic will help you learn what is needed for recovery. You will be evaluated by a rehabilitation doctor who will assess your symptoms and determine the treatment and services needed to help you get back to the things you enjoy.

Recovery time

Each person recovers at a different rate and has specific needs and capabilities. Your doctor and your rehab team will work with you to determine the best route for your recovery. For some, longer hospital stays are needed. For others, going home and returning for outpatient therapy is recommended. Some may be transferred to another type of facility for longer-term care such as a transitional care or long-term residential care program. Other community-based programs that provide support to people with brain injuries include home care services, independent or assisted living programs, vocational rehabilitation programs, group homes and support groups.
